Keep them Coming- Amazingly Funny!!!
12 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this series! I hope they keep them coming for as many years as the actors are willing to make them.

I am laughing/crying watching this. It reminds me of my own parents (who are straight), so I think anyone with family married as long as these two have been together can relate.

I honestly laugh every time I watch these (and I have watched each episode at least 3 times).

So just enjoy a good laugh (if the gay aspect puts you off---- get over it and just enjoy the fun).

PS- The dog cracks me up... so close to life at my house!
